In the latest news of strange bedfellows, a New Zealand news source reports that Microsoft’s Halo movie, based on the highly popular Xbox game, will be produced on servers running the Linux operating systems. Dogs and cats living together, pandemonium!

Produced by famed Lord of The Rings director, Peter Jackson, the Halo movie will be using the assistance of Weta Digital for special effects.
